Its a shame that most everyone in this forum,never made it out of the house after the `70s.Or even gave the later years a listen.My year would most definetly fall between `89-`93....Years in which they performed like a well-oiled machine,stated by many to be the band`s best years...But most people here wouldn`t know that,for they are blind to years after`79.....If you can`t find great shows in all era`s of GD music,then it only proves you haven`t really tried to......Because there`s plenty of them!...(ex.12/28/91@Oak...12/10/93@L.A..10/9/89@Hampton,Va...and even a real late one..6/25/95@R.F.K)....If you`ve never given these shows your attention,then do your ears a favor and check them out.They may not be spectacular in ALL catorgories,but no show ever was....but you always left feeling good with a smile on your face!

dude I'm one of the ones that enjoy something from every era. I happen to think it's obvious that some eras were clearly better, no contest, but that doesn't mean i can't appreciate it all. I saw all my shows 89-92 ( only two in 92 and they were definitely the worst ones ). I think 89-91 were damn good years for the band and I'd like to think I can be objective about that by listening to the tapes ( still call shows that ). They sound very tight those years imo. 83-86 and 92-95 I listen to the least but there are a few I still listen to and enjoy now and then. Still have yet to get on or appreciate the 79 bandwagon that so many are on either but I can still dig something from every year just some less than others.

No...I understand..I don`t think that any era is that much better than the any..It just seems when someone even dares to speak with kind words about the`80s/`90s on this site,the "bandwagon"as you call it,jumps down your throat and preaches how its all useless music.and I`ve had it with those who do as such.I love it all!..I knew that from the start..And never could I use things like Jerry`s addiction,to come up with false ideas on why the band as a whole may not have played up to standards set high from previous shows in years past.I believe he played great none-the-less,even better than great on occaision.The question in this forum,raelly ought to be.Why can`t someone choose to love the`80s/`90s?....But I do get such a laugh when the"wagoneers"jump all over the posts I put out.Nothing better to do than hate,hate,hate....what a shame.

Because you're a dick? That's where my "hate" comes from.
You come on here and start to criticize folks and slam them for not liking what you like and then somehow they are the ones "hating". Do me a favor - put down the bong, get out of mom's basement, and go over to Lost Sailor's or Deadhook to meet some "kind Heads" because my initial reply when I see any of your posts is a hearty "GO FUCK YOURSELF"!. How's that? Get the reaction you want?

And no, WT is not here to moderate.

If you love the 90s, fine. Enjoy it. I saw a lot of great Jerry shows in the early 90s, but only one or two GD shows that I enjoyed. The vast bulk of my shows happened from 81 thru 89 but I rarely venture past 78 for listening (unless it's a show that pops up in a thread). I personally don't want to hear froggy Jerry or Vince or a lot of the lesser tunes from the later years, but understand why some folks really like SOTM or So Many Roads. To each their own.

You`re a fucking joke.You haven`t the first clue on what "kind,"even represents!Keep on with your mouth and its gonig to find you trouble...i promise.Your hateful,generally negative and judgmental comments are a reflection of what is wrong with asshole,such as yourself.Thinking that,since you grew up in the`70s and in your case,might!,have seen them then.You are pro-young Jerry and nothing He did after then suits you!And if you try and say that its because the music wasn`t as good.You should read prior post,in which you and others have downed everything from Jerry`s voice,which is ridiculous considering AGE!...to MIDI-tech...to drug use...to event time not being as long as earlier dates,again,anyone ever heard of noise ordinance....to the always prevalant,no matter the year,the singer or circumstance,missed notes.Which are heard throughout all era`s of music.There are many more that aren`t worth my time but those four alone show how pathetic you are.Excuses and excuses that`s all they are....The only thing I can find which needs excusing,is you,for being such an ASS.....don`t piss me,you "little bitch!"

Agstwst33 never"hated"or criticized anything,except for the disrespectful posts/comments,directed at the music of the `80s and`90s and/or reasons for why"they hate"it.Usually having to do with Jerry not performing up to,your`s and their standards.So,The only"hater"is you and your side-kick,who thought how wonderful your post to Agstwst33 was.Which was telling,on alot of levels."Kind,"you are not.I don`t think you ever had a clue.You also can`t tell the difference between,"hating"and"standing up for what you believe to be,damn good music!"And from what I read,that`s all agstwst33,is and has ever been guilty of.It seems all you ever had to say,was something negative,or a "hateful"comment,about what was said.I for one,agree with agstwst33,all of Jerry`s work`s are great,in their own special way.From the`60s-`90s.Maybe you should take your advice given to agstwst33,and find out what"kind"and all things peaceful really are all about.Because,you`re just a jerk,who seems to need to grow up.STOP HATE!

" I don`t think that any era is that much better than the any"

completely DISAGREE with you on this one. 72-74 vs 92-95? come on! Proof alone are 3.5 hour shows vs 2 hours, more inspired playing, longer jams, less predictable, etc etc. That's just one example. Preference and tastes are objective but some things like I mentioned are not

In all fairness, I think there are only a few people on this forum that are SO vehemently anti-80s/90s, but the ones that are can be a little out of line. Comes out of passion for the eras they DO deem worthwhile, I suppose.

I've never been able to get into anything past 1983 (and only rarely past '77) but that doesn't mean I don't try it out once in a while. It just usually doesn't hold the magic the earlier years have. But maybe that's just because my ears are so tuned for the spritely, youthful sound of early 70s dead that I can't digest the (perhaps more mature) sound of the later era. That being said, I do think drugs severely eroded Jerry's inspiration, if not his physical ability to play/sing.

Ya know , its been Years . I love acoustic Truckin ' , Operator , NSB , BPalace , and most of all Cocaine Blues ! ( I have always hated what I call the A...... drug . ) One of only 3 times played . I can confess down hear that I really don't like electric Truckin' . Sometimes , but I usually begin listening after the vocals . This is a serious problem in the early '70's , as it is integral to the long jam . Now don't go tellin' on me jots . ;)
I'll put those in the hopper . 40th anniversary for everything '70 . Now go listen to that link . I'll even narrow it further , DS > StS . Go

Let's maybe take a few miles off that fastball , so we have some better control , so we can get it over the plate . Honey always works better then vinegar . Hey , some like vinegar and I wish them the best as they go on their way .
Are you angry that no one has responded yet , ( and that may be a key word here ) to your post , ' That's Real Love ' ?
Hmm. I was ending my touring days in '90 ( begun in '87 ) . So I did leave my home . I was blessed to see that year 3/ 24 / 90 , 7 / 14 /90 and 9 / 19 / 90 among others . I also crave , and are my first two fav years , '68 and '69 ( '90 coming in third - See )
Passion is good . Connecting with others is good . That last post may not bring the results you want .

edit - BD , I am shocked at how nice you were . Are you listening to ABBA again ?

2nd edit - WTF BD , now my first edit is all fouled up . Would you make up your mind please ? Now , that's the BD I thought of when I first read your milquetoast response .
